My Stage Two is up....

 

If I can offer a personal opinion that isn't already covered or answer any questions... Hit me up.

 

Great job Scott!     I picked up a dozen reds and I'm having good success with them.  Now I plan to try the blacks .

Yeah I want to give the Blacks a shot as well. But the Reds are pretty great for me.

I played them with a new Mizuno ST180 this week I borrowed from a friend who is a demo rep and was playing with me. The combo was perfect. Just perfect. I averaged 20 years longer with great dispersion over my 10+ year old Mizzy.

Damn, now I need a new long stick.

Fountain of a driver 10 years newer. I have an old Mizzy MX500. The St180 is just better for me.

Snell MTB Red – Official MGS Forum Review by MaxEntropy

 

 

Conclusion

 

Overall, I was very pleased with the performance of the Snell MTB Red. It was every bit as long as the Titleist NXT Tour S, with initial results suggesting it might be even a few yards longer off the driver. I saw very little difference in the performance off full iron shots and with a putter. Where I believe the Snell performed extremely well was chipping and pitching. I was very impressed with the stopping ability of the Snell on these shots. Being a golfer who usually does not get much spin, I believe the ability to spin these short shots will help my game, in the long run, because I will have more shot options available to me. If you are the type of golfer that struggles to stop the ball in your short game, you need to try this ball. The only downside I found with this ball is the firm sound on short shots. I am still not quite used to the sound as it reminds me of historically low grade balls (Top Flite, Pinnacle, etc.). Due to the performance, I am willing to get used to the sound.

 

Final Score: 86.

 

Great job!  Very through and it's obvious you put a lot of effort into your review.

Yes it was. All my rounds were either Mud Run (18) or Raccoon Hills (27)

So I spent the weekend at a member guest tournament playing my OG Snell MTB's (I mismanaged my stock of Reds). They were just as good as they used to be, but not as good as the Reds have been to me. The OG approach shots were not as sticky as I wanted them to be. They certainly stopped but didn't seem to have the few feet of draw back with a proper strike I had seen with the Reds. They also didn't seem to be as tough and showed a bit more wear than the Reds had.

I think I am gonna get a couple boxes of Blacks started this way and see how they treat me. I am tempted to just keep with Red, but I am going to give the Black Snells a proper go.

Alrighty....Stage 2 is up. Hope you guys enjoy it. I enjoyed putting it together. Don't mind the video work. I'm nowhere near a professional. Haha. Any questions...please ask away! :-)

Great work pal. Thoroughly enjoyed the video content.

 

 

Everyone else, be on the lookout! The rest of the stage 2 reviews should be trickling in very soon.

 

This is a cool review because there's so many reviewers with different opinions on the balls. Add that to all the non-testers with personal experiences to share and this thread has some serious value for those in the ball market.

 

Thumbs up y'all

      Hello there!
      Since there aren’t near ranges where I live and courses memberships and fees are expensive, I have searched for alternatives.
      Found the famous Birdie balls and the Almost Golf Balls and yesterday I came across this new ball: Sci-Core practice ball: here’s a link to a video of them: https://youtu.be/sjVC1mCJEF4
      I have to admit they look good at least. They seem to be similar to the Almost Golf Balls.
      Has anyone from this forum tried them? Would love to see your reviews and experiences

      All this talk of the MGS Hard Rock Challenge and the ball test recently has me thinking about the hardware...
      I know I *should* be gaming one model, and probably one I'm fit for at that. But the cheapskate in me just can't pass up on a free wayward ball, looking for a home. Nor can I bring myself to just toss the 24 pack of two piecers I walked away from Christmas with.
      So my question is this - what do you do with the random balls you might come across one way or another? Do you keep em all? Hit them into the woods? Do you have a threshold of quality that determines if it's a keeper or a leaver?

      This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! 
      Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Testers Wanted (10)
      Fresh off it's stellar performance in the MyGolfSpy 2019 Golf Ball Buyers Guide (Read it Here) the newly released Snell MTB-X is taking the golf ball world by storm.  Within two days of the study the ball was sold out on Snell's website. So what's all the fuss about, can a $32 (Less if you buy in quantity) ball  really perform as well as some of the "Big Boy" balls?  Well that's what we want you to determine for yourself.  
      Ten members will be selected to receive, test and keep a dozen Snell MTB-X balls (your choice of White or Yellow) then report back on the forum your experience and thoughts of the ball 

       
      The new 2019 Snell MTB-X is a 3-piece tour ball designed for lower driver spin, higher ball speeds, reducing “ballooning” with irons and providing excellent feel around the greens. 
      How To Apply
      Open to U.S. and Canada Residents
      Important Steps Please Follow All Them Exactly
      *DO NOT quote this post in your application post!
      Your First Name City of Residence 
      Swing Speed
      Current Primary Ball
      Tell us of any previous experience with Snell Golf Balls...It's OK if you don"t have any.
      Note: Participating and completing this testing, will not eliminate you from other testings to come in 2019
      Testers will be selected sometime next week. 
       
      Your attention please.... after much deliberation and analysis we have come up with our list of 10 lucky spies who will be giving these balls a thorough test.
      join me in congratulating these 10(!) spies who will be testing the MTB-X ball:
